SADDLE UP AS CMT’S “COWBOY U” RIDES INTO COLORADO FOR AN ALL NEW SEASON IN JANUARY 2007


NASHVILLE – December 5, 2006 – Eight new city slickers pony up for the adventure of a lifetime as COWBOY U returns to CMT with an all new season, premiering Friday, January 12 at 8:00 - 9:00 PM, ET/PT. Professional cowboys Rocco Wachman and Judd Leffew, and their team of seasoned professionals, attempt to acclimate a fresh batch of city dwellers to the cowboy lifestyle in only three weeks in
COWBOY U: COLORADO.
Shot in a beautiful setting near the Rocky Mountains, Rocco and Judd coach contestants through an intense cowboy boot camp on
COWBOY U: COLORADO. The eight contestants, whose occupations range from an assistant football coach at Johns Hopkins University to a stay at home father, each face daily obstacles and physical burdens in their quest to become true cowboys. From their first contest - catching an ornery calf and putting panties on it, to their lack of big city luxuries, to their first bull riding lesson, the participants are pushed to their breaking point. In the end, only the strong survive and only one will be worthy of the title "Best All Around Cowboy," taking home the cash prize and the glory.

This season’s contestants include:
Bobby - an assistant football coach at Johns Hopkins University from Baltimore, Md.
Candace - a stay at home mother from Philadelphia, Pa.
Cosmo - an unemployed financial consultant of South Philadelphia, Pa.
Farrah - a real estate agent, from Dallas, Texas
Katie - a teacher from Los Angeles, Calif.
Malcolm - a stay at home father and freelance graphic artist, from Park Forest, Ill.
Rich - a volunteer firefighter and restaurant owner, from Hanford, Calif.
Sarah - a patient care coordinator, from Clayton, N.J.

COWBOY U: COLORADO is the sixth season of the series to premiere on CMT and was shot at the M Lazy C Ranch in Lake George, Colo. The first installment of COWBOY U debuted in August 2003 on CMT, and the series has continued to grow in popularity with viewers. Past seasons of COWBOY U have taken place in California, Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma and even Hawaii.

COWBOY U is a production of CMT and Los Angeles-based Triage Inc. Executive producers are CMT’s Melanie Moreau with Stu Schreiberg, Stephen Kroopnick and David Wechter of Triage Inc.
